Is It Time For 1993 Suzuki Sidekick Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1993 Suzuki Sidekick, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Sidekick bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1993 Suzuki Sidekick in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Suzuki Sidekick’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Sidekick

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1993 Suzuki Sidekick suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Suzuki up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1993 Suzuki Sidekick shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Suzuki Sidekick shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1993 Suzuki Sidekick suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1993 Sidekick Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Suzuki Sidekick get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Suzuki Sidekick power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Sidekick is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Suzuki's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
